A Morphological Adaptation of the Aardvark is That It Has Powerful Claws for Digging Into Ground or Termite Nests

A morphological adaptation of the aardvark is that it has powerful claws for digging into ground or termite nests. Some morphological adaptations of a Bumble bee are wings to fly which help them get away from predators, a stinger for protection and for attacking, special fur that can pick up nectar to make honey to feed them, and antennae to communicate.

  A morphological adaptation of the aardvark is that it has powerfulclaws for digging into ground or termite nests.Some morphological adaptations of a Bumble bee are wings to flywhich help them get away from predators, a stinger for protection andfor attacking, special fur that can pick up nectar to make honey to feedthem, and antennae to communicate. So by doing that he is able tofind some food and aA behavioral adaptation of the Caiman lizard is that if disturbed orthreatened, the lizard will drop into the water and quickly swim away. The many physiological adaptations the dromedary has even earned it the title ship of thedesert . Dromedaries can glean much of their needed water from desert vegetation, and cansurvive after losing over 40 percent of their body weight in water. When water is available,whether fresh or salty, camels drink well - up to 57 liters at a time. Camels also have a flexible'thermostat', and will not start sweating until their body temperature reaches 42oC / 107.5oF.Nor do heating mechanisms kick in during the cooler nights until the internal temperaturereaches 34oC / 92oF. Besides saving energy, this physiological adaptation allows the camel to store coolness in preparation for the next day. The electric eel is different from other electric fish in its ability to generate a stunning or even a killingelectrical discharge. The electric eel can produce up to 600V in a single discharge -- this is 5 times theshock you would get from sticking your finger into an electrical socket. The electric organ, which consistsof a series of modified tail muscles, is similar to a row of batteries connected in a series. It is subdividedinto three sections: two small and one large. One small battery is used for navigational signals. The  large battery and the other small one are used to generate the stunning discharge. After delivering astrong shock, the electric eel must then allow the electric organ to recharge.When the weather gets warm, about 37 degrees Celsius, bats simulate the act of perspiring. The fruitbat will lick their breast, stomach, and wings to the point that it would seem they'd been bathing inwater. Then, they'll fan one of their wings back and forth to create s breeze against their body. Thiscauses the moisture to evaporate. Thus, cooling them down.When the weather gets cold, about 10 degrees Celsius, they'll wrap themselves tightly in their wingedmembrane, tucking their heads, faces, and any other parts they can manage inside. From that pointtheir warm breath will become a source of heat. In addition, their usual huddling together in largegroups creates warmth as well. These are some behavioral adaptations of the fruit bat.
